Watch: The Creepy Real-Life 'Foxcatcher' Documentary Starring John du Pont

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When it comes to this year's creepier awards contenders, Foxcatcher has to be near the top of the list. Bennett Miller's film based on the real-life story of multimillionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) and his bizarre relationship with Olympic wrestlers -- and brothers -- Mark (Channing Tatum) and David Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) plays out like a slow-burn thriller, featuring tremendous acting to go with a story that'll body-slam your emotions by the time it all wraps up.  What we learn about John du Pont throughout the film is that he's a sociopath whose years of being trapped in his mother's shadow slowly pick away at his sense of being, transforming him into a person who desires his own fame and success, but only knows one way to go about achieving it...

Now You See Me 2 Title Revealed

2 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

2013’s Now You See Me was one of those quiet box office successes that kind of flew under the radar.  The magician-centric heist picture didn’t garner great reviews, but it opened to a solid $29.3 million and went on to gross $351.7 million worldwide.  With an international hit on its hands, Lionsgate/Summit unsurprisingly put the wheels in motion for a sequel.  G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu takes over from previous helmer Louis Leterrier this time around with the entire main cast returning plus Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, and Jay Chou (The Green Hornet).  And now that filming is set to get underway soon, star Mark Ruffalo has revealed the official Now You See Me 2 title: Now You See Me: The Second Act.  More after the jump. With pre-production on the sequel now underway, Ruffalo opted to break the news of the Now You See Me 2 »

Spirit Awards Nominees: The 15 Biggest Surprises

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Independent Spirit Awards were never supposed to be a harbinger of the Oscars, but in recent years, the booze-infused celebration in Santa Monica — held the night before the Academy Awards — had become just that. All the acting winners at last year’s Oscar ceremony picked up a Spirit first, and so did best picture champ “12 Years a Slave.”

So it’s particularly confusing that this year’s Spirit nominations completely shut out what is supposed to be one of the season’s heavyweights: The Weinstein Co.’s “The Imitation Game.” It wasn’t a good day for Harvey Weinstein in general, since his entire awards season slate of “St. Vincent,” “Begin Again” and “Big Eyes” (which only got a screenplay nod) was left out.

While the Oscar voters and Spirit nominating committee don’t overlap, in a competitive awards season, these nominations do matter. It gently nudges voters on »

Mark Ruffalo reveals Now You See Me 2 title

Now You See Me didn't get a lot of attention but certainly made enough at a box office to garner a sequel when it grossed over $350 million worldwide; there is an audience for this somewhere it seems.

The best actress category is populated by Julianne Moore for Still Alice — arguably the awards season front-runner in this race — as well as Marion Cotillard for The Immigrant, which picked up its second nod for [link »

Andy Serkis on bringing Hulk and Ultron to life through motion capture for Avengers: Age of Ultron

24 November 2014 2:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Andy Serkis is best known for his motion capture roles, such as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Kong in King Kong and Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Most recently, Serkis has been brought on board Avengers: Age of Ultron to help the cast with motion capture through his studio Imaginarium. Serkis also has a live action role in the film, with speculation suggesting that he is playing the Black Panther villain Ulysses Klaw, but his main responsibility was working with James Spader and Mark Ruffalo on their motion capture work as Ultron and The Hulk.

Gregg Alexander, Former New Radicals Frontman Turned Oscar Contender, Talks 'Begin Again'

24 November 2014 1:37 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Gregg Alexander is a free agent who makes the music he wants to make. The affable singer/songwriter whose New Radicals existed briefly between 1997 and 1999, turning up the hit "You Get What You Give," co-penned and produced the songs for John Carney's terrific summer musical film "Begin Again." Keira Knightley headlines as a bright folk chanteuse — rocked by a breakup with her cocky, more successful pop star ex (Adam Levine) — who drifts into the sights of an alcoholic indie music exec (Mark Ruffalo), who spies more than just coffee shop-lite talent in the young Gretta. The film's standout track is "Lost Stars," which is headed for the Best Original Song Oscar nomination and has popped up at various award shows throughout the season, including a rare performance at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. Alexander, meanwhile, is on the award circuit and back in the spotlight after New Radicals disbanded 15 years ago. »
